About the Author



About the Book

Designing Hope is a book that explores creating compassionate work for humans. It defines a design framework that creates hope by practicing in an ecosystem, honoring that community with its solutions, and sharing in the responsibility of its outcomes. It’s equal parts manifesto and practical guide. It strives to rise above technical theory, seeking out practical compassion. In short, if you create things for others (you do), this book is for you.

Community Feedback

“Empathetic, practical, and of course, profoundly hopeful: An accessible manual for designers who want to swim upstream against the tide of cynicism.”   ― Abby

“A thoughtful, hopeful and compassionate book that anyone in design and/or product development should read. At the very least, Jeremy forces you to stop and consider the implications of your work.”   ― Ben

“Jeremy believes in another way… That when viewed through the lens of serving others, this fun and frustrating and furious work can have purpose.”   ― Chris

“I really connected with the spirit of this little book - looking at our platforms and fields of work as chances to practice and display servanthood, stewardship, humility, and integrity.”   ― Karl
